We open our season with a splendid Russian program featuring some of the greatest master composers. Our concert begins with a fanfare of the celebratory Festive Overture by Shostakovich. This is followed by Tchaikovsky’s immortal First Piano Concerto played by Daniel Hsu, a brilliant young pianist and prize winner from the Van Cliburn Piano Competition. The program ends with the majestic and humorous Fifth Symphony by Prokofiev.
